Re: 3D Software

I'd look at https://www.onshape.com/open-source It's online so a bit slow, but does everything you want. One caveat - you can only create open source models without paying for it, so it's no good for commercial projects, but for hobby use it's fine and we can all share models on there. If I ever get...

Re: Forum running costs

We are covered for about a year in advance now with todays donation. Thanks again to all that have contributed. Bad personal news too I'm afraid - I'm now officially unemployed as I've had to shut down the retail of my model business, although my models will still be available through Shapeways and ...

Re: 1/24th Ford Transit Van

A bit of an oddball version though - it has the rare hatchback type lifting rear door, instead of the much more common twin doors, and side access doors on both sides - still I suppose that makes it easier to cover to RHD.

Who knew I was a Transit geek too?

At some point, I'm planning to do a G-9 3-d print of a Scamp - have got a copy of the drawings off Colin.

Re: 1/32 scale

Quite a bit of Gn15 stuff will work in 1:32, Steve Bennetts wagons and my small range would be fine in the scale - Diesels OK too with maybe a little work.

Re: Want a minimum gauge model railway business?

Problem with Ebay is it now costs 40p a month to list something for £2 - this is ok if you are selling something that you can sell a good number each month, but things like the Gn15 skip chassis I'm selling on average one a month. Hence why I've not listed any more. By the time you have deducted sel...

Re: Want a minimum gauge model railway business?

I'd better make it clear, I am going to continue to produce stuff, both on Shapeways and my own printer - it's just I'm acutely aware that I'm not marketing much of that self same stuff very well - I'm sure there are many people who would be interested in what I produce do not know of it's existence...

Re: Dapol N Gauge chassis

Off course you could just use my 09 skip chassis - would give you a much better size of wheel,9 inch in scale as opposed to the 4.5 scale inch N gauge ones.

Re: Want a minimum gauge model railway business?

Exhibitions cost even more for me - I need to make £500 profit minimum to cover my costs, which means sales of £850 + - but for me £400 of that is ferry fares, fuel, motorway tolls and hotels - someone in UK could do it much cheaper. To give example of the comparative costs of printing - a simple Gn...

Re: Want a minimum gauge model railway business?

What I am looking for someone to market for me is mostly my home printed range - this is fairly extensive now - about 14 wagon chassis in Gn15 with a choice of about 22 bodies to go on these. In 09 there are about 12 wagon chassis with around 30 possible bodies. I even have stock of about half of th...

Want a minimum gauge model railway business?

As some of you may know I've been suffering a cash flow crisis last few months. Unfortunately the private hospital where my wife works has suffered a dramatic decline recently as they used to do a lot of work for Russian medical tourists, and with the fall of the Ruble, they are not coming. So they ...

Re: V-tipper wagons

The Ravenglass had 2 Hudson 1/2 Cu yard tippers. I think they were originally built to 18" gauge spec. My Ravenglass friends tell me that they are long gone. There are, or were, what looks like a similar pair at the West Lancs. They were parked on a short length of track opposite the station. ...

Re: V-tipper wagons

Does anyone know if there were any prototype skips of the traditional bent steel round end type built for 15 inch gauge ? All the ones I've seen have been converted from 2ft gauge ones with the wheels set in a long way from the side frames.

Re: V-tipper wagons

I think the confusion with 2 or 3 gauge comes from the fact that we English use no 2 gauge as 2 inch gauge, 7/16th inch to the foot scale and number 3 gauge as 2.5 inch gauge with 17/32 or 1/2 inch scale ( live steam tend to use the latter ) Another 40cm gauge tipper https://lh3.googleusercontent.co...
